Another high character guy, Magee is majoring in Law & Society and aspires to work for the FBI or DEA. Enjoys going to church. Played fullback in short-yardage situations in high school and can line up at DE.
Scouts Inc. gave Magee a rating of 74 and ranked him the 8th best DT available in the draft.

Magee is versatile enough to line up inside in a four-man front or outside in a three-man front. He’s arguably a better fit on the outside and he’ll hold up against the run better there. Although he needs to develop his arsenal of pass-rush moves, Magee’s capable of improving in that area. Finally, he has lined up at fullback in short-yardage situations in high school and could possibly do that in the NFL.
I like this pick a lot. He may have been listed as a DT, but I imagine he will play end in the Chiefs new 3-4 scheme. The only reason he was a third round talent is because he didn’t progress the way a lot of people thought he would after being dominant early in his career. My brother-in-law is a Purdue grad so I had the opportunity to watch Magee — and the rest of the Boilermakers — play quite a bit the past couple of seasons and this kid can play.
